    Twitler said he did an outstanding job. Pruitt's resignation letter is beyond gag worthy.

    Stephen Colbert does not Trump to survive ratings. He was on the air long before Trump. When he interviews people on his show, he does not spend his interview time talking about Trump. Historically speaking, every President is made of fun by talk show hosts. Just click and search on Youtube.

    Colbert’s opening monologues are almost entirely all about Trump every night. Of course all the late night hosts punch jabs at Presidents, but every time I’ve watched Fallon or Kimmel... they’ve at least included a couple other things in their monologues.

    And of course Colbert doesn’t bring up all politics when he interviews guests. The guests are on the show to advertise a movie, etc etc.

    I maybe should’ve rephrased what I said about Colbert needing Trump to survive. Since you’re right - he was around for a long time before Trump, but you can’t tell me him bashing Trump everynight isn’t helping his ratings at all. I bet a lot of like minded people tune in because of it.

    This thread should be renamed to “Anti-Trump”.


    coming from a person who doesn’t lean either way. a ton of points in this thread are valid. I just don’t see how posting silly photos of him contribute to anything.

    Lol don’t throw tomatoes at me guys!
    Has Trump done anything good at all or is it all terrible?
    I’m asking honestly not being a jackass.
    I’m really curious if he has done anything positive?

    I’m not an expert and I don’t know when news is fake or not. I think maybe the Korea kim jung un nuclear stuff was positive but I could be wrong. Shoulder shrug I dunno.

    That's the image of him making fun of a disabled reporter. It's iconic
    - he pretty much did it to himself.

    North Korea appears to be taking no steps to denuclearize. In fact, they may be doing the opposite.
    The agreement with North Korea included nothing - there was no specific agreement (it included no specific steps to denuclearize).
    Trump said we agreed to that, but North Korea made NO specific agreements. (An agreement would be both parties agreeing)

    So, that's where things stand.

    While it's true that most of us are anti-trump, I think when someone who is not enters the thread - we're pretty respectful to them. If you posted, I really like that Trump did X, probably someone would discuss it. (As in, talk about the issues).

    We do post 'disrespectful images, comments'. I don't think I've sworn directly at Trump (in this thread), but in my private life I sure have (and I might have in here.....I usually don't swear online, so I'm not sure). I have posted angry images. I'm really angry at him. And I really dislike him.

    But I think all of us (who post here regularly) drop that when someone raises an issue to discuss. We ARE nice - and respectful of others. (I hope it's okay to speak for a thread.....that's probably taking on too much). But it does seem true to me. When you appear, for instance, we are both respectful of you and the fact that you have a different opinion. People really do support a respectful dialogue.

    But most of us still sort of hate Trump. And when the discussion ends, we revert to a shorthand - which makes sense. At the end of the day, we're the folks mostly in here. It doesn't have to be that way, but it's what usually happens.

    You are very nice, Jan. @DCI@DCI is also nice. And also very knowledgable.

    It’s just, like you said, when the discussion ends things go back to a shorthand with disrespectful images (imo) and whatnot. I don’t know why I visit this thread to be honest. I guess to see what the opinion is from the anti-Trump side, but the opinion is always the same. It’s always anti-Trump no matter what. So I’m beginning to think I’m insane for keeping on checking in because the sky is still blue and even if Trump did do something positive (which I don’t think he’s been all that terrible since getting into office) no one would side with him anyways.

    I’m not saying he’s Mr. Perfect. Hellll to the no. Heeelllllllll to the no. It’s just a lack of diversity in this thread in terms of viewpoints and this will be my last post in it.

    I see the comments on this being an anti-trump thread or not, and how nothing gets better with any president.

    true true on the last statement, but our current president is a bully, and is making an example that bullying is okay. He's openly a terrible person, and somehow conservative america thought that was okay. I'm really not sure how or why, but they did. He get's to bully on an international political level. So that's fun with weapons everywhere.
